I have some pic's somewhere of my 1/8" thick aluminum bar shims fix from Home Depot. Basically, pull the adjuster bracket (one side at a time), slide the aluminum bar underneath, mark where you need to cut the bar to fit, drill holes for the bracket bolts, remount the bracket and you're done. I have the comfort seat and the diff between before and after was significant with just the 1/8" shim. No more sliding forward. I'm toying with the idea of adding another 1/8" just to see if it makes any more difference. I'll post the pic's when I find them if that will help.
